Now it is Speaker Pelosi’s turn to be in the hot seat. The GOP, desperate for a victory or trophy of sorts, has set its sights on Speaker Pelosi and what she knew or didn’t know about water boarding. In reading the various articles about Speaker Pelosi going mano a mano with the CIA while at the same time her GOP counterparts are throwing gasoline on the fire, you don’t see any lefties coming to her defense. I guess lefties aren’t too comfortable weighing on her behalf on an issue like water boarding because what happens if on down the line other stuff comes out that sheds doubt on the Speaker’s claims. Lefties don’t want to have egg on their face on an issue as volatile as water boarding. It looks like she is kind of on her own for now.

If he doesn’t, Speaker Pelosi will lose credibility and become another casualty of politics. Commentary doesn’t have a problem with adding Speaker Pelosi to the bailout list.

I wonder who has better odds in Vegas today – Speaker Pelosi hanging on to her gig or the Rockets winning Game 7 this Sunday.

Yesterday’s ‘Stros game was Wandyful. If Wandy keeps it up, he could be representing us in San Luis for the All Star Game on July 14. All Star possibilities also include Michael Bourn who is hitting .317, Numero 45 at .328, Hunter Pence at .333, and Miggy at .314 as we head into Wrigley for three beginning this afternoon so move over CNN.
